Please help resolve the problem we have with networking.
We have a Broadband connection that is working perfectly!
But we want our laptop to share this connection also. Can anyone help us please.

We have a modem connected to the splitter that is plug in the wall phonejack.

I already called a tech today who just rip me off with $82.50 call out fee.


We also have a wireless router, and a wireless card in the laptop. both pc has XP Home.

Hi Emilita,

Have you tried following SpaceCowboy's tutorial? It should really cover this -- Start here: Wireless Home Network Physical Setup

If you run into any problems, then please don't hesitate to ask :whistling:

Hi Dan,

Thank you so much for the reply.
The problem is solved now, it turns out that maybe the DLink router was faulty, we took it back to the shop and bought Belkin package (modem/router and wireless card for laptop) and everything went fine after we plug them in and run the setup wizard.

We haven't done the file and printer sharing yet, so I am very grateful that you provided that link which I'll certainly use.

Thank you so much! You have been great help!

I'm glad to hear that you managed to solve your problem :whistling:

Was it the tech who suggested that you replace the router..? Or was he completely useless? :blink:

lol,
I guess he wasn't completely useless after all. Took him over an hour to realize it was faulty though. Who would think a brand new router would be faulty.
It's just that, I didn't like it when he said I should buy his products when he comes back plus another call-in fee.

That tech won't have many repeat costumers, I just found out that someone down the street called the same company and the tech also left with their money and computer wasn't fixed. He doesn't seem to care about customers it seems.

Oh well, I'm happy now. Maybe I should just learn to be a tech, lol

Thanks again Dan, I might have technical problem again oneday and post here.
